The Ring is composed of four operas: Das Rheingold, Die Walküre, Siegfried, and Die Götterdämmerung. The Paris Opera originally scheduled The Ring as a live performance but had to shift its plans to comply with safety measures in the pandemic. However, both Philippe Jordan and director Alexander Neef were committed to presenting this epic work as a final collaboration celebrating Jordan's decade-long tenure with the company. To that end, the orchestra recorded three performances at the Opéra Bastille and one at the Auditorium of Radio France. France Musique broadcasted the performances between December 26 and January 2, 2021, and they can be streamed on demand for a month at francemusique.fr.
